Creating a community to empower people
Frequency is committed to building a community and sharing resources as part of our mission to fundamentally change how noise-induced hearing loss and other conditions and diseases are treated. Sharing the stories of people and their diverse experiences not only helps to bring a group of individuals together, but it also spreads awareness about under-recognized conditions that can affect millions of people. We believe that information is both empowering and vital to tackling difficult challenges. On these pages, we are actively collecting and sharing information about the diseases and conditions being addressed at Frequency. If you have resources that you would like to suggest or have a story to share, we want to hear from you. You can contact us here.
